THE SEDGWICK MUSEUM OF EARTH SCIENCES - FEMINIST TAKEOVER WEEKEND

6th/7th December 2019

December the 6th and 7th will be the Sedgwick Museum’s first ever festival of feminism, highlighting the lesser-known stories of trailblazing women of geology and palaeontology through a series of interdisciplinary art/science workshops!


Join geologist and landscape artist Emma Theresa Jude for a series of workshops, talks and classes across two days, designed to connect people from all walks of life (women and others, geologists and non-geologists, artists and non-artists) to the earliest women in the earth sciences, from Martine Bertereau, Mary Anning and Etheldred Bennett to the Sedgwick’s own Mary McKenny Hughes and Gertie Elles.


On Friday, take part in an introductory feminist tour of the Sedgwick collections or an evening drawing class on the subject of women in science illustration - all levels welcome! Or if you’d like a more in-depth dive into the collection, take part in our full-day Saturday workshop comprising a morning’s full tour of feminist history, followed by a drawing class to produce imaginative drawings inspired by the layers and textures of the museum’s collection as well as the inspiring women of its past.

DRAWING FOSSILS LIKE A FEMINIST - THE SEDGWICK MUSEUM ILLUSTRATED

Friday 6th December, 6.30-8.30pm - £14

The Sedgwick Museum Late will cover the role of women as scientists-artists in the early development of palaeontology through an all-levels drawing class! 

We will begin with an exploration of the crucial role women as multidisciplinary scientists and artists played in the development of palaeontology, focusing particularly on historic women of the Sedgwick. Emma will then lead the class through three exercises in charcoal designed to loosen up and improve confidence in beginner artists, resulting in a final piece in multi-tonal charcoal to take home.

Materials provided.

A FEMINIST'S GUIDE TO DINOSAURS, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH LONDON DRAWING GROUP

Saturday 7th December, 10.30-3.30 - £20

The sell-out, immensely popular feminist drawing workshop is back! Join Emma and London Drawing Group for an in-depth walk through women's role in geology and palaeontology, from the first female geologists like Martine Bertereau, through the Sedgwick's own Mary McKenny Hughes, to modern scientific rebels like Gerta Keller, asking the difficult questions along the way.

What role did the intersection of class and gender play in Mary Anning's story? What can Marguerite Thomas Williams tell us about the history of geologists of colour? Should gender be irrelevant in science, or can women's perspectives accelerate scientific progress?

In the afternoon, we will guide the class through imaginative drawing exercises inspires by the Sedgwick's collection and its women.
